What do we all want from our makeup? The perfect shade, perfect coverage, lots of good stuff for our skin, sun protection, etc; and to top it all off we want it to look like it’s not even there! How does one find this magical product? Let us tell you.
- Test foundations on your CHEEK, not the inside of your wrist. The inside of your wrist hardly, if ever, is exposed to sunlight making it shades or more lighter than your face.
- Test foundations in various lighting. Makeup in sunlight can look completely different in a bathroom or under fluorescent lights, and vice versa.
- Determine your type and coverage and eliminate those that don’t cater to your needs. If you are shiny stick to matte formulas that are oil-free or a powder formula, if you are worried about fine lines and wrinkles opt for an anti-aging formula with a bit more coverage, but not heaviness as heavier makeup with settle into lines.
While there are thousands of brands and types we love to rave about Jane Iredale’s cosmetic line.
